Block courses of 1 to 4 weeks will be held twice a year (spring and fall) by participating members. The goal is to introduce the students to various computational methods, train them on software development and related applications. These courses also serve to expose students to research in the various groups. PhD students of the program can also follow regular courses related to Computational Sciences at UZH and/or ETH. Here is a table with a non-exhaustive list of courses in Computational Sciences.
